The UFC has announced a change in the main event slot for the upcoming UFC Vegas 74 card. The flyweight fight between Kai Kara-France and Amir Albazi has been promoted to the headline bout scheduled for June 3 at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas. This shift was confirmed by both fighters after an injury forced Jack Hermansson out of his originally scheduled matchup against Brendan Allen.
Kara-France will be looking to bounce back after a loss to the reigning UFC flyweight champion, Brandon Moreno in his last fight. Prior to that, the 28-year-old New Zealander had secured three wins in a row, including a knockout over former UFC bantamweight champion, Cody Garbrandt.
On the other hand, Albazi, a 29-year-old Iraqi-born fighter, will make his first-ever main event appearance at the UFC. He is currently undefeated in the promotion, with a perfect 4-0 record and has a total of five consecutive wins under his belt. Impressively, three of those victories have been won by either knockout or submission.
The full card and bout order have yet to be announced by the UFC, but with Kara-France and Albazi locked in for the main event spot, this promises to be a highly anticipated fight for both the fighters and the fans alike. Fans can expect an exciting showdown between two of the best flyweights in the UFC, each looking to further their career and climb up the rankings in the division.
